in regards of merchandise. But then that is why there is a lawsuit happening right now to define tangible.

I dont think personally they will be able to prove what that specifically means because although they will have good lawyers, WB's will be better.

I think what a lot of people are put off by is that WB obviously doesnt care about the works or Tolkien they are just wanting to make money for their shareholders, that is all.

Welcome to the real world - sometimes its great, other times i wish i was born years ago.

Ultimately it is about where people want to see Middle-earth go - do they want the movies to be the leading iconography or the books. If someone likes the books more, they will more likely side with Tolkien Estate, if someone prefers the movies then the opposite.

For me i think its sad that it can basically be exploited to this point. Had Tolkien been alive today and sold the rights, he would have been a lot more savvy in terms of merchandise and the limits he set, rather than just saying any tangible merchandise as that could be different for you and me. For me that means books, bookmarks, posters, calendars for others it may mean gambling machines, or any of the other plethora of merchandise.
